Lindsay Lohan is allegedly planning to sue over claims that she was drunk during a hit-and-run incident.
This week LiLo returned to the spotlight for all the wrong reasons when, just days after criticising cops for not being harsher on Amanda Bynes, she was involved in yet another driving drama.
Jose Rodriguez claims that the actress struck him while she was driving a Porsche in New York City this week, and later told a reporter that she "smelled like alcohol real bad", and was slurring her words.

Both Lohan and the police have insisted that she had not been drinking, and alcohol was not a factor.
TMZ now reports that the star will sue Rodriguez for defamation, fearing that she will lose work and suffer a huge blow to her comeback campaign if people think she's off the wagon.
She is apparently telling friends: "I'm tired of people lying just to score a quick paycheck".
Her role as Elizabeth Taylor in 'Liz and Dick' will be shown this November.
